Pro Series: Anatomy of a Pitch Deck
April 1 | 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
As a partnership with Dr. Jesse Jur of Wilson College of Textiles, Pro Series for Spring 2021 is focused around textiles startups! This series of workshops brings in textile business experts to work with participants on a bunch of topics surrounding launching a textiles-based business. We encourage all entrepreneurial students to sign up, even if you aren’t interested in textiles specifically. This series of workshops will be informative to entrepreneurs of all kinds!
Formally, the pitch deck communicates the ideas and strategy to an audience. Informally, the design of a pitch deck gives the audience a picture into the type of person and company that they may be working with. Most importantly, the pitch deck is a living document that evolves with your company and you as an entrepreneur. In this session, we will break down the anatomy of a pitch deck and hear of the pitch deck evolution from textile entrepreneurs.
